Should you need a tooth replaced, there are two options you can choose from:
A single tooth implant dental implant is, by far, the most superior method of tooth replacement available. The reason is that it is made of titanium and surgically placed in your jawbone. This prevents slippage or loosening, offering you a more stable restoration.
Dr. Shahdad, along with your oral surgeon, will begin the placement procedure by administering local anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable. Making a small incision in your gums, this will expose the bone, allowing for proper placement of the dental implant. Once it is placed and the area is closed, you will be sent home.
Over the course of a 3 to 6-month timeframe, the implant will fuse to the bone and surrounding tissue. Once you’ve thoroughly healed, you will return to have the abutment placed as well as your customized dental crown. The abutment will connect the implant to the restoration, and you can guarantee your dental crown will look just like the rest of your natural, healthy smile.
There are ways you restore the look of your smile, but if you want a fully functional smile with greater stability that is designed to last decades, there’s no better solution than dental implants. Here are a few of the additional benefits:
